The sculpture is a sundial which, at each solstice and equinox, will cast a shadow on one of the surrounding structures. These structures also can serve as benches.

The works installed were Bill Lorraine’s “Ann’s Girl,” Tim Marshall Curtis’ “Fishtrick,” Trish Pleasant’s “Hawksbill Reef” and Paola Effio’s “Catfish” are all on loan for the next several months. The artists and the Monroe County Council of the Arts Director Liz Young were on hand for the installations. Pictured: Paola Effio with “Catfish.”
